The glow of a holiday can be seriously scarred by a disastrous flight experience.

Passengers trying to get from Philadelphia to Lisbon were delayed when a woman had to be forcibly removed from their flight after kicking off at the crew.

Puking babies. One too many drinks. Awful delays. Mid-air relationship breakups. And then there's extreme turbulence. There are so many ways a flight can go horribly wrong.
